Health Services Improvement

This programme is for those professionals who wish to engage actively at the forefront of health services research but who are not primary researchers within their place of work. It is suitable for people who are involved in evidence-based health service redesign and innovation, such as clinical practitioners, managers, leaders and commissioners both within the public or private sector. Students will be taught by international experts and authors in complex interventions research methods. Topics such as patient and public involvement, collaborative working, evidence-based practice, complex interventions, health economics, clinical trials and medical statistics will provide a common thread that runs throughout the programme.

Entry requirements

Normally a minimum 2.2 Honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline. Relevant clinical or professional experience may be taken into consideration as evidence of equivalency. International applicants need to meet the English language requirements.
